As a competitive fencer, this has bugged me for quite some time. Seven or so months ago during a bout I felt a ripping feeling on my upper thigh, right leg. This was an hour into the class and I was completely warmed up. Before I felt the rip, my leg felt a bit awkward and sore/tired. And my hamstring tore while I was lunging. I thought it was just a small tear and it'll heal soon but one month later- no improvement, I still had pain. My coach told me to rest it for another month- I didn't fence or do intense work out for a month. On month 3, I felt better and went back to fencing. I regret it because during my private lesson it started hurting badly. This is when my parents took me to the doctor and the doc scanned my spine, hips, and leg and found nothing. So he referred me to a physical therapist. I did PT for almost three months- no improvement. I could no longer feel pain when doing everyday things but once I went back to fencing, it felt the same. The competition season is starting soon and I do not want to miss out on it but I do not know how to deal with my leg anymore. I lost quite some strength in both legs from not using the muscles and there is no improvement in my hamstring. Also, the hamstring is around the buttock area and half way through my upper thigh. Have you guys dealt with a similar problem before?
